Brushman: are you serious? you're kidding, right? he KILLED someone!! and not on accident - directly from his CHOICE to drink and drive! a choice HE made, and we ALL know the risk it poses when someone CHOOSES to drink and drive. its inevitable. and now you are saying he should get some kind of kudos for admitting to it?! "Give credit where Credit is due"?? no - the right thing to do anyhow is to admit it. he shouldn't get any special praise for doing what he should have done in the first place. he shouldn't get any praise AT ALL. he stole someones life and left a hole in MANY peoples lives. So what that he made a fancy-pants video. instead of spending time on that video, maybe he should have walked himself into a police station and turned himself in. The family of the victim has spoken out and is outraged that this ass-hat has made the video. was it really necessary? no, he wanted some attention. and I bet he figured his sentence would be lessened if he did that video. how narsisistic. "Pieces of a broken pearl, like this guy, need to teach the rest of us a lesson" - wow. umm, no. the only lesson to take would be not to drink and drive - but i knew that already ;)

The video quality tells me this is a major hoax advertising Don't Drink and Drive.

i think maybe they really should show some leniency. He didn't have to confess a thing. He could've just stayed invisible, but he came forward (whether it was "high profile" on YouTube or otherwise).
